Re: Capital One credit limit increases

Congratulations OP

 

I must say that Capital One has been acting a little out of character of late. I've seen quite a handful of posts on this forum of individuals getting CLIs or PCs on request from Capital One. Maybe, just maybe......

Re: Capital One credit limit increases

Hi,

 

I just want to add to the fact that I got a $1,000 just recently as well (Sep 14 to be exact.). I've paid my cc bill on time and more than twice a month. I also noticed I had a "document" to review and turns out it was an electronic letter stating that becuase they liked me, they were giving me a $1,000 CL increase. So, yes, I thought it was a joke, the steps program stated $500 CL inc. but no, I got $1,000.

 

For the record, I have 630 score and was approved for a $500 limit. Also I have OrchardBank with a lousy $300. (I hope they do it with O.B as well, same company after all)

Re: Capital One credit limit increases

 I was given a 300 dollar credit limit when I applied, and after 6 months they gave me a 2000 CLI to 2300.

Re: Capital One credit limit increases

I started with a $2000 limit on the Cash Rewards card back in July and it was increased to $2500 in Feb. I have earned $140 cash back on that card so far. I was also approved for the BB store card (backed by Cap1...soon to be Citi) with $2500 CL and no AF. I have an Orchard Bank card siting at $1100 since 2011. I use my Cap1 Cash Rewards and Chase Freedom card for 90% of my monthly expenses. My Orchard Bank card is in the process of being SD.

Re: Capital One credit limit increases

Mines was on the 7th statement but I think they can be on the 3rd, 5th, or 7th statement.

Re: Capital One credit limit increases

Same experience. Applied and was approved for 1st CapOne credit steps card about 6 months ago (no rewards, insane 24.99% APR!). $300 CL, with promised CLI to $500 after 5 months of on time payments. Used a few times, always paid more than minimum each month, sometimes $200 sometimes only $50. But had $0 balance at 6th statement and was given a $1000 CLI to $1300.

Awesome surprise, but my 2nd CapOne card is still my goto card ($500 CL, no rewards, $39 annual fee, no interest ever). This is a credit steps card too, due for "pre-approved" cli to $750 next month...

My only other card:: a n00b Visa from my credit union. 9.2% apr and $750 CL. Only been open 12 months.

Still feel like I getting screwed somehow lol...

     I have been reading this board for a while now. Figure I could share something. About seven months ago I applied for and received Capital One's cash rewards card. I was given a 300 dollar credit limit and put on the credit steps program. As long as I paid on time and didn't exceed my credit limit and on my seventh statement I would receive a 200 dollar CLI.

 

     I use that cc for my everyday cc because I have 0% interest and 5% cash back. So I was expecting a bump of 200 dollars to show my next statement (October would be month seven.) I'm up late working and I get what I thought was the standard email that I thought was my statement now being ready to view. I log into my account to see I was given a 1,000 CLI to 1,300 total. The email was to let me know I had a document which was a notice from Capital One stating the above.

 

     I really have no answer as to why the large increase on my first "step." I'm not complaining though, I earned it. I use it all the time and paid several times a month on it because of high use (why not, 5% cash back is OK with me.) I will say I don't know if I ever once paid in full. I always carried a small balance. So, there is some fresh data on Credit One steps program. They also gave me the 39 dollars back (credit to my account) that Orchard charged me when I opened my account with them.


Congrats on your CLI :smileyhappy:
